Where makes you happy?
Is it taking in the view in Neck Point Park? Walking along the shops of Commercial Street? Your favourite spot on the Nanaimo Bar Trail?
Our communities impact our levels of content and discontent through many factors. Author, Charles Montgomery, dives into the correlation between urban design and the science of happiness in his book, Happy City. Charles will be speaking about his research on November 3 at VIU during World VIU Days. Join us for this presentation, where you will learn more about how our parks, streets, buildings and architecture can all impact how we feel.
In anticipation of his presentation, we want to know where in Nanaimo makes you happy?
If you have a place that makes you especially happy, or evokes a strong emotional reaction, please share it with us. As we promote this event we would like to hear your stories and hear about your special places in Nanaimo.
